QuantumKernel

class QuantumKernel(feature_map=None, enforce_psd=True, batch_size=900, quantum_instance=None, training_parameters=None, evaluate_duplicates='off_diagonal')[source]

Bases: TrainableKernel, BaseKernel

Pending deprecation: A dedicated trainable quantum kernel implementation that constructs and executes quantum circuits directly.

The general task of machine learning is to find and study patterns in data. For many algorithms, the datapoints are better understood in a higher dimensional feature space, through the use of a kernel function:

\[K(x, y) = \langle f(x), f(y)\rangle.\]

Here K is the kernel function, x, y are n dimensional inputs. f is a map from n-dimension to m-dimension space. \(\langle x, y \rangle\) denotes the dot product. Usually m is much larger than n.

The quantum kernel algorithm calculates a kernel matrix, given datapoints x and y and feature map f, all of n dimension. This kernel matrix can then be used in classical machine learning algorithms such as support vector classification, spectral clustering or ridge regression.

Parameters
  • feature_map (QuantumCircuit | None) -- Parameterized circuit to be used as the feature map. If None is given, the ZZFeatureMap is used with two qubits.

  • enforce_psd (bool) -- Project to closest positive semidefinite matrix if x = y. Only enforced when not using the state vector simulator. Default True.

  • batch_size (int) -- Number of circuits to batch together for computation. Default 900.

  • quantum_instance (QuantumInstance | Backend | None) -- Quantum Instance or Backend

  • training_parameters (ParameterVector | Sequence[Parameter] | None) -- Iterable containing Parameter objects which correspond to quantum gates on the feature map circuit which may be tuned. If users intend to tune feature map parameters to find optimal values, this field should be set.

  • evaluate_duplicates (str) --

    Defines a strategy how kernel matrix elements are evaluated if duplicate samples are found. Possible values are:

    • all means that all kernel matrix elements are evaluated, even the diagonal ones when training. This may introduce additional noise in the matrix.

    • off_diagonal when training the matrix diagonal is set to 1, the rest elements are fully evaluated, e.g., for two identical samples in the dataset. When inferring, all elements are evaluated. This is the default value.

    • none when training the diagonal is set to 1 and if two identical samples are found in the dataset the corresponding matrix element is set to 1. When inferring, matrix elements for identical samples are set to 1.

Raises

ValueError -- When unsupported value is passed to evaluate_duplicates.
